How Long Does It Take To Replace Shingle Roof?
If you’re thinking about having a new roof installed on your house, then you’ve probably got a lot of questions. Chief among them, perhaps, is how long will it take to replace the roof? While other roofing materials like slate, concrete tile, and wooden shingles can take more than a week to install, an asphalt shingle roof can usually be replaced in just one to two days.
Of course, there are going to be variables, such as the overall size of your house. The one-to-two day estimate is based on the size of the average residential roof in the U.S.—which is about 1,700 sq. ft.—but if you live in a home that’s much larger, you might want to allow an extra day or two for the roofing crew to finish the job.
And speaking of the crew, how many roofing technicians will be working on your new roof? Typically, roofing crews consist of about five individuals, but of course, having more technicians on the job will likely make for a quicker turnaround, and vice versa. The level of experience the crew has can also affect the duration of the project.
Then there’s the question of whether you’re just having the shingles replaced or if you’re having new underlayment installed as well. To do a proper asphalt shingle roof replacement, your contractor should install new underlayment and new flashing in addition to putting on new shingles. But not all contractors are created equal, so when you’re shopping around for a roofing company to work with, be sure to ask them which components they will be installing for your roof replacement.
